XIV AIMC World Conference of Contemporary Mosaic 
Vienna, May 21st-24th, 2014

Dear Mosaiclowers,

I am very pleased to inform you all, that the European Commission Representation in Austria kindly supports the AIMC conference and accompanying exhibition in a real way - if not a financial way . We were given a written contribution for the catalogue and a member from the commission will speak at the opening ceremony of the exhibition on May 21st 2014.

More specifically we are allowed to use the Logo for all our printed matter as well as the website.

The conference regarding the speakers is fully booked. We are going to listen to at least 34 interesting lectures. There are still some enquiries, the latest coming from the University of Buenos Airesin Argentina. It is amazing to notice just how attractive “Contemporary Mosaic” is!

The “Vienna Tour” is absolutely fully booked. For those who are too late to join us on the tour but would like to share supper with us in a typical Viennese resturant in one of the northern suburbs, I shall try to organize (extra?) transportation from the hotel and back.

The date of the follow on exhibition is fixed for June 14th to July 30th 2014 in the Gallery of the “Glas Museum Weigelsdorf”, 40km south of Vienna. Please see the attached photos. As many of you know already, Mrs. Hilde Kuchler, participant of the conference and exhibition, is owner of the Gallery and museum and will help us in storing (free of charge,) the lighter and smaller pieces, which are sent to Vienna. She will bring them to the Architectural Centre on the morning of the May 20th and on May 26th collect those which will stay in Austria for the next exhibition.

Because there were not enough participants to hire a bus for the “Vienna by Night Tour”, I was instead able to accept the kind invitation of Mrs.Kuchler to visit the Glass Museum. This event shall take place on Thursday, May 22nd 2014 from 4,00 p.m. – 8,p.m. (Originally this time was reserved for the walking tour to see some modern mosaics, indicated on our website, klick program).

The bus will pick us up in the centre of Vienna, we pass southern Vienna and see a typical part of lower Austria, which gently connects here with the Hungarian landscape.

At the “Kuchlerhaus” , whose façade is totally covered by mosaic, we can see the beautiful gallery( ca 200qm), where our exhibition will be , as well as the wintergarden, which also can be used for our mosaics. At the Glass Museum, Mrs. Kuchler herself shall be our guide. The price of this trip shall be €10.00 per Person , including the bus trip and - thanks to Mrs. Kuchler - this is a very reduced entrance fee for the museum. Coffee/ tea and cake is also available for € 4,50.

Soon after 7 p.m. we will return to Vienna, to arrive at the Hotel Intercity at 8.00 p.m.
You are kindly asked sign up quickly, (the bus has only 50 seats) using the following email address:

The trip can be paid for when you arrive, therefore please acknowledge your booking. Thank you!

I am very much looking foreward in welcoming you in Vienna! With cordial greetings
